Noise Risk Calculator
The Noise Risk calculator looks at your leisure and work activities and estimates your risk of hearing damage from noise exposure.
It will take about 8-10 minutes of your time to complete. Save your results at the end to review or compare another time. You can also experiment with your results to see how changes in your lifestyle could affect your hearing risk.
Want to contribute your results to science? Volunteer to answer a few extra questions at the end and we can add your results to our research database. Help us get a better picture of Australia's noise exposure!
